wednesday. the attacks came just months after india resumed peace talks with pakistan. so far no group has taken responsibility for the bombings, and indian officials are not speculating on who may have been behind the blast. secretary of state hillary clinton says she will proceed with plans to visit the country next week. now here's your first look at some of the other news going on around america today. >>> video from a dash cam has three tennessee sheriff's deputies in hot water. the officers took down an allegedly intoxicated man then repeatedly punched, kicked, and tazed him. while the man was handcuffed and half naked, the officers claim he was resisting arrest. the incident is now under investigation, and all three officers have been placed on administrative leave. >>> an attorney in louisiana is forced to answer some tough questions after surveillance video showed him fighting in a bar located in the town he represents. the attorney said he was defending himself, and he sued the bar for lack of security. the owners countersued, saying the attorney's bar tab was unpaid. >>> in ohio

fairly steady growth in mexico. not dramatic growth. this isn't china or india, but steady growth. there's more jobs for mexicans. not as many as people would like. not as good as people would like, but it's been growing. people have more incentives to be at home and close to their family and the u.s. economy isn't doing as well either. >> julio, what kind of job industries are booming in mexico? >> here in mexico really employment opportunities are growing in many areas. one of them is tourism. government is investing a lot in tourism and manufacturing at the north of the country is growing a lot. >> and what's the impact then of the drug violence? if it's true that the economy is somewhat more successful in retaining mexicans, you would think that drug violence on the other hand would be driving people out, julio? >> well, i think it's a combination of manufacturers. migrating to the united states is becoming more expensive and more dangerous especially now with control of the border by the drug cartels. it is also more expensive because of the border enforcement that started with the

, in china, in india are paying a lot lower tax rate. that hurts job creation here. look, it's not the big companies anymore that are engaged in international competition. it's the small and medium businesses that are, too. we just feel that if we keep taxing our job creators, our businesses, at higher rates than our foreign competitors are taxing theirs, it will cost us economic growth. more to the point, when we keep raising taxes in washington, for ephemeral promises that never materialize, we are not fixing the problem. >> let me get to that topic. the "wall street journal" says even the $600 billion in spending cuts in stage one are worth grabbing as part of a debt ceiling vote. more broadly, democrats in the gang are making a big concession by saying the tax rate should go down, not up. >> i agree with that. >> even obama-care must be reformed. why not grab what you can? >> that's what i want to do. >> and worry about reducing the taxes down the road. >> i think that's what we're going to do. >> if they don't materialize, you can revert and raise taxes down the road. >> i think that'
